Engine Swapping My Wife's Trans Am
Tune into my YouTube channel to check out a little something that I have in store for my wife. A while back, I came across this Pontiac Trans Am in pretty nice condition, I couldn't help but jump on the deal. However, the one condition here was that the car was going to need an engine as the current engine had a broken rod.
Unlike a lot of Trans Ams that one would find on the market, this one had been relatively untouched. As cars get older and have a community behind them who like to modify, one is going to find that most of the examples you run into are either beaten on to the point where they aren't worth fixing or that they have been modified to the point where it's going to be a headache to get them to be reliable. In this case, we run into a machine where neither of the above applies and a fresh engine will have this Pontiac on the move again.
Down in the video below, take a ride with me as the Pontiac breathes new life once again. In place of the original engine, I decided to go with a 6.0L LS setup. Along the way, you might learn a couple of things about what makes these cars special and how I decided that I wanted to dial this one in just right for Cassi.
At the end of the day, this rig needed a little bit of TLC. However, it wasn't very long before the car ended up becoming a pretty awesome ride for her.
